Last year I started to write some posts which, to be brutally honest, I didn't have the guts to publish on this site as they were too raw or revealed too much of myself.

So instead, I published them anonymously on a friend's site under the category of Certain Dark Things.

I have finally realised, and I can't sum it up any better than in the words used by Mary Oliver, that darkness doesn't necessarily equal wrong or bad.

Sometimes it is a gift to ourselves in getting rid of the past, and making room for the future.

And sometimes revealing a little more to others allows for a revelation to the most important person in our lives.
